Nanci Griffith — Before lyrics

I dreamed of Louisiana
And a night in Lafayette
We had breakfast with Susanna
We were young and wild and left

[Chorus:]
What's different here than in that dream
And in reality
Is we weren't afraid to fail in love
And we all believed in the dream
Before...Before

I dreamed of Manhattan
In a time before this war
It was snowing down on Bleecker Street
It was before you were a star

[Chorus:]

Now everything is twilight
It's a time too dark to see
It's fear of being what we were
And pondering the dream

Then I dreamed of Texas
And the Gulf Coast shores
I dreamed of who we used to be
And the hope we had before

[Chorus:]
